lyrics

I broke that penguin that you gave me last christmas
I broke that stupid plastic birthday gift
I broke the window to the place where we lived
And I find that I'm still broken after all

You keep me hanging by a thin frayed thread
You keep me up when I should go to bed
You keep me hearing whispering voices in my head
And they tell me I'm still broken after all

What are you doing here?
When will you learn to disappear?
Yeah, I still want you near
But your the one who broke me after all

I've got to find my own way out of this mess
I fail when I put will power to the test
Instead of writing I should go get some rest
But I'm inspired by my broken after all

Exactly what is it that you still want from me?
I've heard that talk is cheap but it's still far from free
Across the table your still so damn pretty
And I find that i'm still broken after all.

What are you doing here?
When will you learn to disappear?
Yeah, I still want you near
But your the one who broke me after all

You buy me lunch that's only part of your bill
I'd tell you off if I only had the will
But instead my mouth just sits perfectly still
And I find that it's still broken after all

You drive me crazy bringing up the past
Can't help but think this was meant to last
But then you leave me and it's over so fast
And I'm left being broken after all

What are you doing here?
When will you learn to disappear?
Yeah, I still want you near
But your the one who broke me after all

I broke that penguin that you gave me last christmas
I broke that stupid plastic birthday gift
I broke the window to the place where we lived
And I find that I'm still broken after all
